One Day With Lost Things And Media...

Now it´s really close, we are leaving in jan of 12th and I still waiting for my board, my camera and our visum. But my board arrived to the customs her in Sweden today so hopefully it will arrive in a few days, our visum will be done in monday and my camera will be send tomorrow, I hope so hoppefully everything will be here before we leave. It´s quite hard to do a trip without the three most important things, no camera, hard. No visum, very hard and no board, mission impossibly. But a have a Landy DH race in worst case.

These last to weeks are busy, busy, busy.
We are going to be in some newspapers, travelmagazine and local tv. The hardest part is to get me and Maria to do the photoshots together because we live 120km apart.

Besides all these things we have everything set for our journey, now we just have to fit everything in our smallish backpacks. Maria have 18L and I have 28L so it´s alot of squessing and pressing. We are riding all on our own, so we don´t have a backup car with all of our things in it so we have to fit our computer, camera, clothes, spareparts, medicins and all other stuffs in our backpacks and it´s hard to have 5 months of living in a small bag, but it´s the only way.

If you wants to donate money to my fond at childhood cancer foundation you can send me an email to jimp110@hotmail.com so can I help you out.

One Day With Never Summer & ViceTrux...

For a few days ago I got an email from Chris Adrews from neversummer and vicetrux. He told me about a truck that he had developed for a year or so. These trucks looks like something I never seen before and they have suspensions. According to Chris these are the ultimate long-distance trucks so he decided to lend me a set for my journey. These trucks arent for sale yet so I´m one of the first people outside the company to have the chance to ride these "bad boys".

Hopefully I will fall in love with them and ride them for my whole trip.

One Day With Tickets...

Today we finally booked our tickets.

We will leave jan the 12th and return back home in 12th of june.
We will have a massive 20 hours flight to Bangkok from Copenhagen with stops in Wien and Kairo.
When we flights home it will take us like 24 hours.
If we had got a direct flight it would have taken us around 10 hours, but that one is alot more expensive so we decided to go with some "pitstops"

One Day With Pictures...

This Tuesday there was a "proffesionell photograf" here and took some pictures for an article in childhood cancer foundations paper and website.

He took like 200-300 pictures so it was alot of skating up and downs in the hills.
The hardest part was to laugh and turns at the same time, every guy knows what I´m talking about.

We had alot of luck because just one hour after we were done it starts to snow heavilly and in just a few minutes everything was white.

One Day With The Bet...

One months ago I went out with a bet. The bet was if my foundraisingfond went over 12 000 sek I would do one of these three things:
  • It´s almost like waxing but instead you use a machine that pull out your hair from the roots (I don´t know the english word for it). This I will do on my chest and.

  • Eat 1,5 teaspoon of wasabi

  • Get shot with three paintballs in my stomach from 15 meters.
And the winner is the first one with 31 votes against 16 for both they others.

The movie will be out soon.

One Day With Maria...

Maria, my girlfriend has decided to ride along with me on my journey. She will go by inlines and it will be awesome to have someone with me. Hopefully she get someone who wants to sponsor her with a nice pair of longdistance inlines, because they are quite expensive, but she can afford it, she is filthy rich that girl, or what do I know. However I got her some wicked socks from my sponsor Gococo and hopefully some t-shirts from my friend Tobias at Algapan.
